Playoff Teams 2010-2011 Season
Listening to ESPN Radio’s Scott Van Pelt show they brought up an interesting fact on the NFL playoff teams. Their show mentioned that 50% of playoff teams from previous years do not qualify for the current NFL season’s playoffs. Talk about parity in the league, is this good or bad for NFL. Personally I think this is a good thing for the NFL. This gives each NFL season a new storyline; we don’t want to fall into the same old thing like baseball and basketball. So it got me thinking of which teams I thought would fall into this 50% curse.
Playoff Teams from Last Year:
Colts– South * With Peyton Manning at QB they are locks
Saints– South * Too much weapons not to be in
Bengals– North * Wild card this year
Vikings– North * Miss playoffs, tough to repeat last year
Chargers– West *Chargers In
Cardinals– West * No QB Play
Patriots– East *Defense ?
Cowboys– East *Rest of East are a step behind
Jets– Wild Card *Finish 9-7 miss by 1 game
Packers– Wild Card * Take North Division
Ravens– Wild Card * Win AFC North
Eagles– Wild Card * Will miss McNabb this year
I was able to come up with 5 out of 12 teams missing playoffs, cincy would be the easiest to pick to miss the playoffs due to inconsistent play. But if i had to pick #6 chargers would be my pick over cincy. Now I’ll replace those 6 with new teams i feel will be in this year.
Texans- Wild Card-Can challenge Colts, but will grab WC
Falcons- Wild Card- Saints have to many weapons
Giants- Wild Card- Toss up giants and redskins
Dolphins- East Champs- Marshall will only help running game
49ers- West Champs- Cardinals taking step back
Raiders- West Champs- Call me crazy
